The Brilliant 80s

The exhibition has been created in collaboration with the Alexandre Vassiliev Foundation and is dedicated to the vivid and extravagant fashions of the 1980’s. The clothes of this colourful period were characterised by the remarkable silhouette of an inverse trapeze, accompanied by voluminous hairstyles. Daring makeup, oversized costume jewellery, bold colour combinations – all these characteristics help us to recognise the style of the 80’s.
